    Hello guys. I've receive a new iPhone 5s as a birth day gift yesterday. I'm used to apple iDevices and Devices, but it's my first time dealing with Touch ID iDevice.
    Now, I have configure the Touch ID to unlock the screen, and each time I press down the home button from a sleeping screen it directly unlock the screen to the home screen or any app that was on screen before the screen sleep.
    Ideally like I'm used to on iPhone 4S, I will like to press the home button to wake up the lock screen with a "scan your finger to unlock" message rather than straight unlock the device when press the home button.
    The thing is that some times, I just want go see the time and the date quickly and go on, or most of the time, I just want to wake up the device and pull up the camera to take a photo, but once my fingers press down the home button, it just wake it up and land me the home screen.
    I was wondering if I was missing something in the settings or if there is a way for the first press of the home button to just wake up the device with "scan to unlock" message on the lock screen.
    The work around I have found so far is to use a not registered finger to wake up the device which is a pain (hold the device in one hand and use the oder hand longer finger to press the home button before I can wake up the lock screen and stay on it with a "try again" message at the button)
    Anyone with the same issue and with a better solution? Thanks.

    As long as you don't leave your finger on the button it'll just turn on the lock screen.

    Exactly, the Touch ID is too fast, almost no delay, specially when I just turn off the screen and want to turn it on again, it takes me back to the home screen. I now just place well my finger on the home button while pressing it to activate the lock screen, still having the "try again" message at the buttom each time. I will live with that hoping iOS 8 with come with some amelioration.

    If you just want to see the time or access camera from lock screen, just press the sleep/power button at the top of the phone.

    Sure that work. But since 2010 that I have being using iPhone I don't use the sleep/power button to wake up the device but the home button.
    How ever, I'm getting to understand how the Touch ID respond anyway, I need lift my finger faster after pushing the home button otherwise I'm into the home screen, prior 5S, I never though off lifting faster my finger when I press home button to wake up the lock screen.
    A new iPhone a new habit thing. I will get use to it as time goes by.
